Come join us during our VBS week!
Welcome to the St. Mary's R.C. Church of East Islip's Vacation Bible School Page! This year our theme is Sky- Everythings Possible With God! It will run from July 16th-July 20th this summer. We hope to use this page as forum for parents and volunteers. Please look here for updates, reminders and information regarding VBS! We're looking forward to fun-filled week!
What if each Catholic prayed for ten minutes and
read five pages of a great book every day?
What if every Catholic did one thing each week to
intentionally share God’s message with others?
Come and discover how four life-changing habits can point
you towards discovering incredible possibilities for your life.
You will leave the event with a personal plan to help you
become the best version of yourself.

The VBS Planning Team had our first meeting for 2019! We are stoked to bring TWO AMAZING weeks to you! Keep those registrations coming in!
We are still looking for adults to join the "Red Shirt" VBS Core Team. If you are interested, please call Jess Otto in the Baptism Office st 631-581-3304 ext 120 or email [email protected]
Ask about the benefits of joining the team!
If you had the camper registration before 11 AM today, I made a mistake and left off "Grade Completed in June". If you would add it next to the "Date of Birth" I would appreciate it. It has been corrected to the forms currently at the white house, rectory and on the website.
Hi everyone! Registration packets are on the parish website. Please feel free to download for both campers and volunteers. If you would like to drop them off Friday or Saturday, the rectory will take them.
Please read the packet fully.
There is new important information in both letters - campers and volunteers!

Well VBS 2018 is a wrap! Thank you to every volunteer, camper and family who made my 10th anniversary of directing this amazing program the best one yet!!! I have been blessed to share this with each of you! Always remember that when we feel lonely, when we worry, when we struggle, when we do wrong, or when we feel powerless... that Jesus rescues!!! Until we meet again in 2019 my friends!!!
Tomorrow is our last day of camp. We have had a wonderful week and your kids have grown this week!

Thank you for sharing your children with us this week. We are blessed to have shared this time with them.
